Hello all.  My name is Steve Horton.  I'm a brand new HAM as of Feb 22, 2007.  I had an interesting road to taking my test.  I took my first test in 1997 when I was in high school.  I didn't pass and never got around to taking the exam again.  From there I joined the Marine Corps and have been here there and everywhere since.  While stationed here in Japan I decided to try again.  I checked out a book from the library here on base and started studying.  I was impressed at all of the practice tests and morse code websites available.  It was my intention to take the test when I made it back stateside in April but to my suprise I found a location here in Japan to test.  I made my way down to Nagoya and hooked up with the Nagoya VE team (big thanks to Sawaki-san KR7T).  I'm sure I'm not the most unique case but I think it's kind of neat that I became a HAM in Japan.  If nothing else its a conversation piece.  My plan is to test for General when I get home.  Now for the reason I posted this in the Mobile section.  Thanks for all of the great info you guys pass. I'm looking forward to getting home and setting up a radio and antenna in my truck.  Thanks and see you on the air waves.

Steve

While you're waiting to get home, you might want to look over my web site for a few ideas. The Photo Gallery has dozens of installs in just about every vehicle you can name.

While you are thanking us, we should be thanking you for serving in the military. I know the sacrifice of serving.
